Commonwealth Of Australia Thanks Sikorsky For Early Delivery Of First MH-60R Helicopter

Sikorsky has three additional MH-60R aircraft for the Royal Australian Navy in various stages of assembly at its SEAHAWK completion line in Stratford. Those aircraft will be handed over to the U.S. Navy in August and September 2013 for completion by Lockheed Martin in early 2014. The DMO is expected to take delivery of all 24 completed MH-60R aircraft by late 2016 via the U.S. Government's Foreign Military Sales program.

"The efficiencies of a multi-year H-60 helicopter contract with the U.S. Government, and close collaboration with the U.S. Navy and Australia's Defence Materiel Organisation, have enabled us to begin assembling Australia's MH-60R aircraft ahead of schedule," said Dave Zack, Sikorsky's Director of Maritime Helicopter Programs. "The men and women of Sikorsky are honored to continue supporting the Australian Defence Force with advanced capability SEAHAWK helicopters."

The Australian Defence Force currently operates 16 S-70B-2 SEAHAWK helicopters acquired in the 1980s.

The first Australian MH-60R helicopter is the 168 th Romeo model produced by Sikorsky since deliveries to the U.S. Navy began in 2006. The first Australian Romeo also is the 401 st MH-60 SEAHAWK helicopter delivered to the U.S. Navy since Sikorsky began deliveries of MH-60S (Sierra) helicopters in 2001.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture, and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning opportunities for production and sale of helicopters. Actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to changes in government procurement priorities and practices, budget plans, availability of funding and in the type and number of aircraft required; challenges in the production and support of advanced technologies; as well as other risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in United Technologies Corporation's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
